When I was taking photo's of Theyamma, whom I met just 10 minutes ago, her husband came by and wanted to show me something... Neither of them spoke English and I didn't speak Hindi or Tamil, but communication wasn't a problem at all. (As far as communication goes with hands and feet ;)). Later he showed me his fishing ponds and introduced me to the others on his farm. Great to meet him.

  • Thanks man =) Oh I'm sure you'll come up with some great work this summer!
    Well the shots at this location were done in 10 minutes I think? So your subjects have to be a little bit patient and I had to think quickly, but I noticed it costed me a lot less effort than before. So with practice comes ehhh... speed.
    Setting up umbrella takes 2 minutes, then I exposed the camera without flash for a bit dark environment. After that I switched on the flash and because it was noon with very bright sun (although we were standing under the trees) I had no other choice than to put the flash on full power. Ready to shoot!
    Meanwhile chatting with hand & feet, it was a very nice experience.
